My front door has a Kwikset zw+ lock and an Aeotec 7 contact sensor (also zw+). There's an Aeotec extender right by them. I'm not having any trouble with the lock. It's been very reliable. It's the contact sensor. Every now and then it fails to report the correct state. I'm using the generic contact sensor because I found the "Aeotec Door/Window Sensor 7" driver to be incredibly chatty.
What I'd like to do is...
If the front door is locked and the contact sensor reports open, or if the front door is unlocked and the contact sensor reports closed,
Ping the contact sensor and ask for an updated state.
I can't figure out a way to do the ping. Suggestions gratefully accepted!
